Industrial Society and Its Future / The Unabomber Manifesto (2010) in deutscher Sprache. "1. Die industrielle Revolution und ihre Folgen waren ein Desaster für das menschliche Geschlecht. Sie haben die Lebenserwartung derjenigen von uns, die in "fortschrittlichen" Ländern leben, stark erhöht, aber sie haben die Gesellschaft destabilisiert, haben das Leben unerfüllt gemacht, Menschen Demütigungen unterworfen, zu weit verbreiteten psychischem Leiden geführt (in der Dritten Welt ebenso zu physischem Leiden) und haben der Natur einen schweren Schaden zugefügt. Die fortschreitende Entwicklung der Technologie wird die Situation verschlechtern. Sie wird den Menschen sicherlich größeren Demütigungen unterwerfen und der natürlichen Welt größeren Schaden zufügen, sie wird wahrscheinlich zu größeren sozialen Störungen und psychischen Leiden führen und sie dürfte sogar in "fortschrittlichen" Ländern zu erhöhtem körperlichen Leiden führen."

Technology is not value-free; nor does it exist in a vacuum. It needs a social basis - technology is affected by society and influences it. "Technology, Values, and Society" illustrates this using an examination of cross-cultural case studies representing simple, intermediate, and complex societies. Certain forms of technology exist when conducive values and structures sustain them. However, this relationship is not one-way. Technological changes do precipitate social and value changes. It is impossible to sustain egalitarian values in a society involving technology based on hierarchical relationships. Understanding this connection is vital if we are to keep some control over the way in which technology affects us. This revised edition brings the topic to life for both faculty and students.
